Description Robert Walsh 2006-02-09 17:40:43 EST
If I hit shift-control-N to create a new gnome-terminal window, the resulting shell has the same current working directory as the window I hit shift-control-N in. I'm not aware of any other terminal emulator that does this, but I haven't looked very hard either. It certainly doesn't happen on my Mac's Terminal application. This behavior seems profoundly wrong to me, but that's just a personal preference. What would be nice would be a mechanism to allow the newly-minted terminal window to have the cwd set to $HOME. I can see two ways of doing this: either a profile option (probably under "Title and Command") or a different key binding to handle the new behavior.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.

Sorry - I'm using a mac these days, so I've no way of verifying. I will close this out.
